If you’re a first timer in Moscow, this is your go-to guide to the most Instagrammed places in the city. By Anuja Dixit


  1. Kremlin

The Kremlin is the official residence of the President of the Russian Federation. Beyond the red walls that surround the Red Square, you can take an excursion to one of the museums located inside.


2. Saint Basil’s Cathedral


Saint Basil’s Cathedral is a church in Moscow, located at a short distance from the Kremlin. Now converted into a museum, this is one of the most Instagrammed spots in the city.

  1. Moscow Metro Station



You probably won’t find a metro station as aesthetically appealing as this one in Moscow. This magnificently built Moscow’s Metro system was launched in 1935. For the best experience, visit between 11am and 4 pm when there is less crowd.

A guided Moscow river cruise is a must-do for history buffs. The best time to take it is at sunset when the major landmark spots are bathed in a magnificent, orange-hued glow.

  1. Ostankinskaya TV Tower


For a night-time view of the city, climb the  Ostankinskaya TV Tower, the tallest building in the Moscow. This is also a popular place for a bragworthy selfie.
